I love Heath's tatoos.  Just goes to show he was just like the rest of us.  Pierced ears, tats, just like us.  I miss him.
I had my navel peirced which i loved, but one day after a shower it fell out and since I didnt put it right back in, it close up.  I probably never get it redone.  Also, I have my ears pierced, one has 3 and one has two.  My nipples were pierced for about a year or two.  No pics of that though. lol :laugh:

I have been thinking about getting a tattoo for years and years. I always said I wanted a sun tattoo but I could never find a picture I liked. Now, I keep looking at that picture of Heath's leaf tattoo and thinking, "Maybe I should get that one." I think it's very pretty. I wouldn't put it on my hand though. Maybe my upper back/shoulder. Thoughts, anyone? Anyone want to encourage me?

GO FOR IT!!   I think it would be a wonderful tribute to Heath.  I know how much you love Heath.  What better way to show that than getting his tattoo on your shoulder.. Yes definitely your shoulder.  Its a very pretty tat and it looks good on him.. I also love the one on his wrist.

I have to say Heath's tatto is pretty - so go Oilgun!

But the placment of it wouldn't be ideal for most people - he was in a profession where he could 'get away' with it where it was but certainly I couldn't have a tat there.

There is a british presenter called Davina McCall - very famous - and in her youth she got a lot of tats done - she now has 3 children and quite 'sensible' now but i still quite like the one she has on her hand - its on her wrist so more easy to hide under a watch I guess than heath's.

I think that tat should tell a story - and have a personal meaning to the person that gets it. I also think people should think clearly before getting them and weight up the pros and cons.

Your leaf could def tell a story leslie!

Then I need to find out how to find a good artist who will do a fabulous job. Any suggestions on that, Dev?

Here it is, it's a Japanese dragonfly design. I like the austerity of the design. I have always loved the symbolism behind the dragonfly, and have wondered if I should get one tattooed for years. My boyfriend picked a dragonfly for me as a piece of jewelry years ago. Plus, according to legend, when a dragonfly lands on your body, you will hear good news about somebody who lives far away, so I immediately thought of my sister who is waiting on the results of her first scan after 8 chemos!

This one took only 3 (!) minutes!

Make sure you have a good pic of the Heath's Leaf Tat.  Shop around for good artists..Tattoo artists online and go into shops.  The way I found the artist who did my Amy Brown Fairy tat was by seeing her work on someone esle.  I asked where they got their tat and went to the tattoo shop and met Siobon and went through her portfolio.   Most good Tattoo artists have a portfolio...   Never get a tattoo unless you've seen the artists work.!  Oh and BTW when you finally do find the right artist, dont be high or drunk while they are working on you.
